Remember I told you about the new light fixture we put in?

Well, I was looking around at the 100 yen store to find an inexpensive lamp shade but wasn't successful.

So I decided to make my own...

I bought a tiny hose clamp from the 100 yen store.

It wasn't doing what I envisioned it to do, so I looked on Youtube and found a way to fix the clamp (love technology!).

Then I used an empty coffee can and made my shade.

The hardest part was cutting into the thick aluminum/steel seal at the bottom of the can.

I thought I would be able to use a can opener but it didn't really do much.

I ended up using wire nippers and scissors to cut through the can.

voilĂ !

This was fun to make.
